New England Cannabis Community Awards

Thanks to all the voters and everyone who attended the awards show!

2022 N.E. CANNABIS
COMMUNITY AWARDS

The Only Cannabis Awards focused on the
New England Cannabis Community!

NECANN is excited to present the 4th  annual New England Cannabis Community Awards Show!  Focused exclusively on New England, our mission is not a “who’s best” contest, but rather a chance to spotlight, elevate, & appreciate some of the people and organizations who have worked hard and done great things for the New England cannabis communities and industries. 

This year’s event will be free to all attendees & exhibitors at this year’s convention – just bring your badge for entry! There will be a cash bar and well-timed smoke breaks!

PLEASE NOTE:  NECANN does not curate or endorse the nominee list, or the eventual winners.  The candidates for each category below are not “NECANN’s  nominees”.  They are simply a list of the people, companies, etc. who received the highest vote totals in the nomination request ballot we posted for the last two months – we just tallied the votes and are reporting the results.  We hope everyone understands that the spirit of the New England Cannabis Community Awards is not for us to judge or rank people and organizations, but rather to shine a spotlight and show appreciation for the community as a whole.
